Quick Connect Ice Maker Kit
by John Guest
Supply filtered water to the icemaker in your refrigerator quickly and easily! Many refrigerators offer the convenience of in-door ice makers and cold water dispensers, but not all have filtration built in. With this kit you can connect your drinking water filter to your refrigerator, enjoying the same clean, great tasting water in your ice cubes and water dispenser. This drinking water kit has a convenient built-in shutoff valve eliminating the need for a self-piercing valve.

Refrigerator Hook-Up Instructions
1. Thread the 1/4" push-fit compression adapter onto the refrigerator water supply, fully hand tighten, then tighten with a wrench one half turn. Do not over tighten.
NOTE: Some refrigerators require specialized fittings. Refer to the refrigerators installation instructions.
2. Determine the length of tubing required, allowing an extra six feet to be coiled behind the refrigerator. This will allow the refrigerator to be pulled away from the wall without stressing the tubing. Cut tubing square and ensure that the outside diameter is free of any score marks. Make a mark 5/8" from each end of tubing.
3. Push tubing into the fitting until the mark lines up with the face of the fitting.
4. Pull to check that the connection is secure.
Water Supply Hook-Up Instructions
5. Shut off the cold water supply at brass/chrome supply valve.
6. Disconnect the riser from the brass/chrome supply valve.
7. Ensure the sealing gasket is fully seated into the angle stop valve female thread.
8. Install and tighten the angle stop adapter valve on the supply valve.
9. Connect and tighten the riser to the angle stop adapter valve.
10. Mark the tubing 5/8" from end and fully insert the tubing into the Speedfit side of the valve.
11. Once all connections are made open the valves and check for leaks.
To disconnect ensure that the system is depressurized, push the collet square against the fitting. With the collet held in this position the tube can be removed.
